High Throughput Inkjet Printing Technology in Printed Electronics

High Throughput Inkjet Printing Technology in Printed Electronics

Inkjet printing technology (IJP) is a highly prospective deposition technique in printed electronics attributed to its advantages such as non-contact printing, material-saving, low cost, wide applicability, easy-to-use, etc. It has been widely used to manufacture organic/inorganic diodes, transistors, and solar cells, etc. However, using IJP to manufacture outstanding devices needs an optimization for printing materials and various factors involved in the whole preparative process, inevitably bringing in huge workload. Because of limitation on cost, manpower, time and instrumentation, researchers may miss the chances leading to new discoveries and desirable results. High-throughput (HT) screening (HTS) technology provides an economical and efficient way to achieve the goals, boosting the research process.
Sample preparation is the critical step in HTS and becomes more challenging when using IJP. Microdrop Technology GmbH in Germany possesses excellent IJP, enabling reproducible dispensing of droplets at microscopic scale from a wide range of materials. Importantly, it unprecedentedly integrates the IJP into the pipettes, making it possible to automatically fill, print, recycle the materials which are prepared in 96-MTP. By configuring a highly accurate positioning system and by employing an in-flight dispensing function, it can print many solutions precisely and swiftly, and prepare high quality high-throughput samples.
In this application, we will take polymer light emitting diode (PLED) and organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells as examples to illustrate how microdrop Professional inkjet printing platform can be used for HTS study.
Work Station
  • Microdrop
Dispenser Heads
  • AD-K-501
  • AD-K-901


Using microdrop Professional inkjet printing platform for automatic HT sample preparation and then for HTS can be more economical and efficient to obtain the best results. Actually, this application is not limited to the printed electronics. It can be extended to other researches with many kinds of materials, many parameters and multiple combinations, such as, drug screening, biotechnology, material research, and so on, significantly boosting the research process.
